Margot Tenenbaum Halloween Costume | Hair and Makeup

Halloween Costume Idea: Margot Tenenbaum

Admit it: you've always wanted to be Margot Tenenbaum from The Royal Tenanbaums for Halloween. With her deadpan drawl, killer eyeliner, and amazing hair, Gwyneth Paltrow completely embodies the misunderstood adopted daughter of patriarch Royal Tenenbaum. If you've ever dreamed of donning her fabulous fur coat (a faux variety, of course), then there is no better time than Halloween. Luckily, the outfit is fairly easy to pull off.

After grabbing a blunt wig and sliding it on, clip one side of hair off with a barrette or two. Next is the eyeliner. Line your eyes, top and bottom, with a thick black line, and set it by gently tapping black eye shadow on top. A swipe of mascara and a touch of mauve lipstick completes the look. Then, just slip into a striped dress, oxfords, and your fur jacket, and you're set. Extra points for carrying around fake cigarettes and fudging a fake finger . . . somehow.
